    I don't know about you but the program that I've had the best experience with
    is aware jump. It's at How to Jump Higher | Increase Vertical Leap | Vertical Jump
    I'm tired of all that crap out there on improving your vertical game. All these co called "mentors" are just trying to get most of our hard earned money. some programs are costing over $200. We are young and not all of us have that much money. If you are looking for a cheap program that is really effective, look no further and check out aware jump. It will really help you improve you game on a lot of levels.

    Note:links by mnogustar and oliver23 are just ads.

    Grabbing the ring is one thing. slam dunking is another. my friend can have his whole palm well over the rim but he can't slam. he tells me your hand needs to extend till the rim is below the mid of your forearm, before you can do effective slams.

    anyway i can only get my finger emerge 3 cm above the ring. i'm 1.79..haha

    My vertical is 21inches. But then again, I'm a teenage girl. Although I did play volleyball and do high jump when I was younger..

    For me, 113kg, 180cm, 40cm off the floor. Not bad for someone who weighs that much.

    Hahaha.. did this a few days back... 26cm, that's embarrassingly low, isn't it? Hahaha! I'm 154cm. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything to mark my wall, used water in the end, so my figure may be inaccurate.

    Will try again soon when my sprained ankle heals.

    Till then, anyone wants to go lower than 26cm?

    well, i'm 15 and did 57cm(just short of 23 inches). but i'm super light. unfortunately, i never seem to get that high in badminton. if i do, i usual miss time it, due to the fact i'm not used to jumping so high.

    Yeah..I feel like I'm jumping not as high in badminton if I tried. I can jump just vertically higher than if I jump during in badminton.

    probably because you forget to bend your knees and swing your arms up when you go for a jump smash

    IMO, maybe because doing vertical jump, you get more preparation and time.. because your aim is to reach highest point possible right?
    but in badminton, got less time to prepare jump, no point jump to the highest when you going to miss the shuttle. I don't think you will have enough time to move to under the shuttle, preparing to jump then jump as high as possible all the time. unless you have lightning footwork.

    btw how to calculate the jump height? i was thinkin standing and try to reach highest point possible, then jump and try to reach the highest point possible and just subtract them. because if I calc from foot, standing then jump + bend my knee it won't be accurate right?
